This will be the first United States career survey of the pioneering artist Eija-Liisa Ahtila. Ahtila’s provocative, intensely mesmerizing moving-image installations picture what it means to be human, to experience transcendence as well as frailty, to be awed by nature, and to reason with loss. This selected survey of the past twenty years of Ahtila’s multichannel installations includes works from every period of her career, and it features the North American premiere of her newest work, the four-channel installation Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1, 2014.

It is with profound sadness that we at the Marian Goodman Galleries mourn the death of Chantal Akerman, 65.  Akerman was a groundbreaking filmmaker and artist, whose extraordinary career began at the age of 18 with her first film Saute ma Ville, 1968.  Over the last 4 1/2 decades Akerman has drawn wide acclaim and respect for her work in experimental film, feature films and film based installations.  In 2014 Chantal Akerman released No Home Movie, a moving portrait of her mother, which will be screened at the New York Film Festival this October 7, 8 and 11.  Her latest film installation, NOW is currently on view at the 2015 Venice Biennale.  A retrospective of Akerman’s work, organised by Ambika P3 at the University of Westminster, London is due to open October 30.  
She will be greatly missed.

Toledo stands above the fast flowing waters of the River Tagus. Its waters were drawn up by the first communities into their fountains, cisterns and baths, and so the settlement flourished.

In making "Tres Aguas – A Project for Toledo", her most ambitious work to date, Cristina Iglesias drew from the cultural history of the city, its mingling and layering of Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities who lived alongside each other for centuries in the period known as "La Convivencia" or The Co-existence. The three sculptural works that make up the project bring water to the fore; it courses through channels and travels back into the ground after animating the surfaces of the works so they come to resemble the overgrown bed of some ancient river. Visitors are taken on a journey through the city as they visit each work, from a mudéjar water tower to the city's main public space and then onto a hidden location within a convent, a place not normally open for visitors.
Conceived as a journey into the heart of the city, Iglesias' project aligns the hard materials of architecture and the fluidity of water to deliver a sequence of large-scale sculptural works that bring the river back into the body of this historic city.
